I've been living here since April and I am less than pleased with the leasing office. I can never seem to get ahold of them, I have to call 10 times before they answer the phone and I can tell that they hang up the phone when I call because it rings 2 or 3 times then goes to voicemail. When I moved in there was a missing cover on my chandelier and a couple of little things that NEVER got fixed when I was told it would be. The day I moved in my AC unit was broken(which should have been checked when I moved in) and it took them almost a month to come check out. They never answer emails until it's too late, and when we were told that the water was going to be shut off it was not and was shut off the next day with NO warning or reason why it was not shut off the day before. This is my first apartment and needless to say it has not been a good experience so far. They also don't seem to be open when their website says they are. There has been 3 times where the website said it was open and should have been open and the doors were locked and the lights off and when I brought it up, it was avoided.
I have not lived on my own for so many years now I cant even put out a number. This is really a brand new experience, I am still finding my way on how to adjust. Coming from one aspect of a family and condensing to a different one is WOW! This whole move could had been scary, hard, difficult, draining, worrisome and more but it was not because I moved here! Everyone who visits me LOVE my apartment my Aunt calls it my little tuck away and talk about how peaceful it is but no one love it as much as I do...it is our home! The Landing is tucked away from it all! I haven't been living here long about two months and in these two months I LOVE IT. The apartment management personal are here to help you. No matter what it is we are discussing they are super polite and friendly and this matters to me more than anything when you have been through quite a bit. I have had my hiccups in the few months I have been here and they have been nothing but understanding, kind, respectful, and helpful. The building I live in is very quiet. All of my neighbors speak to me and are nice. I read some of the other reviews one was something else. It is way different for me. I never felt unsafe me and my son do a lot of walking around here day and night we both feel 100% safe. If you want a real opinion I would say use your own. Getting a bit personal: You can not please people, people will find fault in a 5 star restaurant and there meal was FREE... people will tear you down no matter what! What is sad I believed different. My apartment has given me the anchor I needed to free my family from all of the madness some bring. Once I see the apartments I feel, YES I home! We, like my Aunt said, are tucked away and in everyday that becomes more real to us. I learn a lesson, from my move almost everyday. Today I learned, if I want to keep my peace I will watch the invites I give out to my BEAUTIFUL home. Some friendly advice people: Focus on your own garden and it shall flourish. When you plan deceit you unsteady your own feet. Some of this may not make sense but to who it needs to it will! Later be blessed
RENTER BEWARE!!!!! READ ALL PLEASE BEFORE YOU MOVE HERE!!!!! I chose to live at Landings at 56th because it was affordable and because it is very close to my sons school Lawrence Central High, than the ad say a lot of money was put in to the property on renovating the entire complex. So I'm guessing if this is true they will do a great job at keeping it up...LIES!!!!! My question is why put so much money in to fixing up a place and than let it go to HELL. The Landings is very unsafe the lie is they patrol they do not patrol nothing. I have NEVER SEEN A NIGHT OR DAY PATROL CAR OR PERSON!!!! The building I live in is falling apart...The light on my floor (second floor my apartment right next to the door that leads to the row of doors on my floor) Is out been out the day I moved in...every time I come from work that door is open I get off work at 9:00 pm get home at 10:00 pm. IF I am ever robbed or worse if I am not KILLED I will be taking the Landings to court and I will WIN...Why... I have been picture documenting the day I moved in!!!! The stairs leading to my floor are falling apart an EXCELLENT trip and fall case for anyone on my floor. I have never seen a place so nasty the woman who lives under me keep a bag of garbage by her door that smells up the place and have garbage spilling all over the floor down stairs this place is NASTY!!!! My floor landing look like some one spilled oil on it....it's dirty and nasty. My son was harassed by some ghetto ass kids on the school bus stop so he has chosen to walk to school. My favorite>>> I went to pay my next months RENT the other night five huge guys was out side smoking weed and started say fowl stuff to me as I walked tired from work to put my money for this place in the drop box...It made me want to NEVER PAY my RENT!!!! I HATE THIS DAMN PLACE!!!! It is a shame to put so many lies on the web...I know nothing will change either. It still will be unsafe and the light on my floor will stay out until something bad happens and it will stay nasty and my stair to my floor will fall apart even more my thing is Landings be ready for COURT because I am.... I took pictures of the stairs, the light, that door being opened, the nasty conditions I am READY!!!!!!!! I can not believe this place is like this in this area. ANYONE can MOVE HERE AND ANY 1 IS MOVING HERE or ALREADY LIVE HERE!!!!!!!!! This is a shame to pay your hard earned money for such disrespectful conditions I could had moved to the ghetto. Lastly the property management are nice people but how nice are you if you do not care about your tenants safety and living conditions...THIS PLACE ONLY WANTS MONEY BEWARE!!!!! I can not wait for my lease to be up....Again unsafe and the patrol lie is a scam!!!!!
Was going to go for a tour but the area is bad, the apartments look awful (I saw what looks like a green moss on the side of all the buildings? Like how hard is it to powerwash building people pay you to live in) I was yelled at and threatened by a man in the apartments' road and he cat called me and another man laughed at it , and I heard what sounded like gunshots. I was terrified and will definitely continue apartment searching.
I have lived here with my family for almost 2 years and I feel like it has been a constant battle with the maintenance and the management. For months I complained about animals in the ceiling (I live on the 3rd floor) and nothing was ever done. At one point a live raccoon came into my apartment at 3am through a hole in the wall and the emergency guy on duty refused to come get it saying it wasnt a dangerous situation. I was 9months pregnant at the time with a toddler and a cat in the apartment. I had to catch the creature myself and dispose of it. It took 4 MONTHS for an exterminator to even be called to fix the ant problem in my home. I feel like whenever I have an issue its a battle to get it taken care of.When I had my baby back in June I went 2 weeks without air conditioning in the summer with a newborn baby. Currently I have not had a working dishwasher for over a month and nothing has been done about it. Maintenance never follows through on anything they say. They will stop by and say they will come back to finish something the next day but you wont see them again for at least 2 weeks and even when they do fix something they leave a MESS and most likely some kind of tool in your apartment. I once had to fish a dirty bolt out of my baby's mouth that they left in my bathroom. Not only do maintenance not do anything in a timely fashion, do anything they say they will do or do anything cleanly, the office never answers the phone or return any phone calls. I have even gone in and talked face to face with managers and nothing came from it. NOW the neighborhood isnt very safe. Cars are constantly being broken into. Children run the streets and cuss out adults. Its normal to hear guns going off at night. I have a gang symbol painted on my apartment building and it always smells like weed in my stairwell. And I NEVER see any type of security at all.It wasnt this bad when I moved in but now I'm frustrated with every problem and I dont feel like my children are safe living here.
